I recently added the Celestron motor focuser to my 11" SCT. All necessary ASCOM and Celestron drivers and platforms are installed as are the most recent versions. Now, whenever the Focuser control is active (or even selected at the top level) on the NexStar handset (CGEM mount with latest firmware), Cartes du Ciel, which I use to select objects with slewing control to the mount, will freeze or become unusable due to lag until the Focuser control is changed to another choice other than Focuser (at any level of the selection). The controlling laptop is a Lenovo Legion running Windows 10 (April update).
